Your rights

Thirrili is a proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Organisation and national provider of suicide postvention (after suicide) services.

Localised suicide postvention support for First Nations peoples

Since 2017, we’ve provided First Nations communities with suicide postvention support and assistance. Our service is Australia-wide, our model is flexible and adapted to place based community needs. We provide meaningful postvention support, case coordination and advocacy.
Communities that have been impacted by suicide can invite us to bring our trauma informed expertise to share with them as they develop their self-determined futures.

Based on strength and local knowledge

We’re guided by:

  • knowledge of shared, collective, continuous ancestral connections
  • cultural ways of knowing, being, and doing.
People, families and communities have their own ways of bereavement, culture and healing. We uphold these protective boundaries.
You can call us, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Australia-wide.

Postvention responses

A postvention response happens after a suicide or other unexpected fatal incident. Support is provided to communities, families and individuals of the loved one who passed.

This postvention support includes culturally immersed case management with a focus on social and emotional wellbeing and reducing the traumatic impacts of suicide, and Community Innovation Plans which engage whole communities in planning what is required to prevent future suicides.

Even though it happens after, postvention is a form of suicide prevention. After a suicide, communities, families and individuals may be at higher risk of suicide. When timely, supportive and culturally safe responses are provided, communities have the tools and strategies required for one of the most difficult times in their family.

Our community-led service

You will participate in all decisions concerning the support you receive.
